The death penalty is being sought in the case of the Boston Marathon Bombing suspect.
I don't normally believe in the death penalty and the surviving terrorist is only 20 years old (an age that has a lot of room for both being influenced and reformed). I see that family members are still grieving and many recoveries are a long road. I can not imagine being the guards who encounter feelings about this incident every day. This would not be an issue if it were being heard in the state court...Massachusetts doesn't have the death penalty. When I think of all the lives altered by so much pain, though I do not believe in the death penalty, I have to fight with the part of me that almost hopes for the death penalty.

-----Thinking we are overdue for a toast at dinner. Breaking out the nice glasses and some sparkling blueberry grape juice. Husband and I will each have the day to think about what we would like to toast. #HopesDreamsLove
-----The next time we have someone over who can watch the kids for a few minutes, I want to go outside and take a romantic snowy (or not snowy) portrait with Husband.

Thursday Thirteen.....

1. Recipes we are trying soon:
-----Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies
-----Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

2. I am taking a class on Dinosaur Paleobiology through the University of Alberta and Coursera. This will help in homeschooling Toddler and Infant. I will teach Toddler some of the things he is already interested in as we go along. :-)
---Thing I learned: Forests don't usually preserve fossils.

3. On our back burner for now:
-----Whiskey Smoked Cowboy Chili. Not everyone in our house can handle this spicy. The spiciness can be scaled down but I don't want duds in the experimenting where one person can't eat.

4. Surprises I did not find surprising:
-----Social media is now the number one online activity...not porn.  Maybe some of the people are now using social media to find real life partners?
-----The Pope tells moms that it is okay to breastfeed in Church.
I have breastfeed on my front porch, in a castle turret, in a cemetery and in Church. I guess I did not think much of it other than to use a cover as there were people whom I would be very uncomfortable exposing myself to (cousins, perverted-old-man neighbors,etc.).

5. Things I did find surprising:
-----A school of fish frozen solid  by cold weather.
-----Olive Oil, Lemon and Sea Salt Sundaes.  Unsure of but willing to try.
-----Doctors ignite patient during heart operation.


This post is a work-in-progress. :-)
